The best of Angels star Mike Trout

Yahoo Sports

You needn't be a sabermetrics devotee to know that Mike Trout, the 22-year-old Los Angeles Angels outfielder, is the best all-around player in baseball. So it was quite a bargain that he was paid $510,000 last season but led all of MLB in Wins Above Replacement.

Trout and the Angels agreed to a new one-year contract earlier this season that gives him a nearly 100-percent raise and pays him seven figures for the first time in his baseball life. Trout will now make a cool $1 million, which is a nice chunk of change for a 22-year-old but still tiddlywinks compared to his peers.
